Liner Notes: 

A reminder to not let someone else’s negativity enter your life or to hide afraid of what others think

Lyrics: 

Open Shades

V1
I see dark clouds forming
and know bad storms are
rolling in

you are coming over
now your harsh judgement
will begin

you’ll incite a fight with
more threats and words but
you can’t win

C
I live behind open shades
there’s nothing I need to hide
I live behind open shades
with integrity deep inside
no matter what you do or say
you can’t ruin my day....
I stand strong behind
my open shades

V2
I’ll keep the windows open
crazy storms won’t sweep
me away

I’ll grab my umbrella
and dance without regret
in your rain

I’ll sing out from my heart
drown out your hateful words
with your pain

C
I live behind open shades
there’s nothing I need to hide
I live behind open shades
with integrity deep inside
no matter what you do or say
you can’t ruin my day....
I stand strong behind
my open shades

B
you be you
do what you do
but this is me
yes I am free.....
I am who
I want to be

C
I live behind open shades
there’s nothing I need to hide
I live behind open shades
with integrity deep inside
no matter what you do or say
you can’t ruin my day....
I stand strong behind
my open shades

I think it's clever how you use the idea of being behind open shades....interesting visual and memorable. The lyric is totally relatable and universal as there are those people who can suck the air right out of a room. Good strength here in the lines to maintain one's own self and principles. Great write!
